Ken Maynard, Dean & Terhune - Old & New in Harmony
A good western with a twist or three to the otherwise usual plot. Here we have Ken Maynard, a western standby since silent films meeting up with Eddie Dean, a new cowboy on the range, with a good baritone voice. Add to this George Alsace (Rocky Camron), another western personality from the early 1930s and the perennial comic relief of Max Terhune and his dummy "Elmer" and you have a good all star cast - that is for a "B" western. Robert McKenzie, a wheezy Andy Devine type provides further comedic diversion. Ruth Roman, who went on to become a big "A" film star in the 1950s is the ever present beauty and here, hip-shaker. Chas. King, a ubiquitous heavy in westerns, is the bad guy. Full of action - gun fights, fist fights, riding, a display of rope twirling and marksmanship by Maynard, a good song or two from Dean - this is an enjoyable western.
